A Little Verified Info on Possible New Ebola Patient in Dallas: “A Low Risk Event”
According to Chief Mark Piland of the Frisco, Texas FIre Department, the patient now under observation in Dallas is a deputy who did not have direct contact with the Ebola patient who died today, Thomas Eric Duncan, but he was reportedly inside Duncan’s apartment and may have had contact with family members.
Chief Piland also reported that the deputy does not have all the symptoms associated with Ebola, but “just a few.” He was transported to Texas Health Resources in Dallas out of an abundance of caution when he complained of stomach pain, and is currently considered a “low risk” patient.
At this point it seems unlikely this deputy has Ebola, but it’s still too early to say for sure.
That’s the extent of the info they’ve released so far.
